This Pickled Eggs Recipe is simple to prepare for something so versatile. This dish owes to the fact that it is a combination of sweet, salty, and sour. I like that you can prepare it once and can be preserved and stored in a jar for several months. This makes it very handy and convenient for surprise guests or just to have some healthy snack ready to serve.

You can serve them in many ways. We like to enjoy them as a sandwich filling, or on a salad, and sometimes with some veggies such as roasted asparagus. However, you can serve them with several variations according to your taste and be creative with it! Also, this dish can be made with jalapenos for a spicier kick or made as the old-fashioned way with beets.

It is also convenient because it can be made with leftover eggs such as from Easter. If you run out of options of what to do with them, this is the perfect recipe to utilize some! Simply follow this recipe, and they will be preserved in vinegar for months to come!

Recipe Tips and Notes

  • We like using BPA free jar for storing them.
  • To make it easy to peel the eggs, you can mix a teaspoon of vinegar with the water you are boiling the eggs in.
  • Another way for easy peeling is once they are boiled, place them immediately under iced or cold water for a few minutes. This way, they will peel off very easily.
  • To preserve them better, ensure to keep them refrigerated at all times. This way you will have a delicious snack whenever you crave it for several months.
  • Also, do not leave them out in room temperature for more than 2 hours.

Will it affect the quality or storage time if you leave out, or significantly reduce the amount of sugar added? I much prefer the savory, spicy, pickled tastes. I don't think we would like it sweet. Beautiful eggs, I really can't wait to try them all!

Reply

You can reduce the sugar, but you still need at least half for the recipe to work.

This sounds like something I would eat during a pregnancy craving just the right combination too. I have had one and it was very tasty although a little to sour but still good
